PRODUCT SHOWCASE: Fastec Imaging Offers IL5 High-Speed Camera


Fastec Imaging’s IL5 High-Speed Camera enables you to view any gears, motors, and small and large rotating machinery or equipment moving at high speed and susceptible to vibration problems for performance analysis or troubleshooting using slow motion replay. With recording speeds of over 630 frames per second at HD 1080p resolution, over 3,200 fps at VGA resolution, and more than 29,000 fps at smaller resolutions, the Fastec IL5 lets you see what you have been missing with normal speed video. Able to save images to an SSD or SD card while recording high-speed bursts of hundreds or even thousands of images at a time, the IL5 is always ready for the next high-speed snapshot. The IL5 is a cost-effective solution to record high-speed events for slow motion analysis.

Built for flexibility and ease of use, the Fastec IL5 camera can be controlled over Gigabit Ethernet via Fastec FasMotion software on a PC/Mac or via the built-in web interface with a web browser on a PC, Mac, tablet, or even smartphone. Using the (LR) FasCorder Mode, users can operate the camera as a regular camcorder to record and pause as needed and follow the action, stop recording and review, and then append additional footage at will, even after a power cycle. Unlike traditional high-speed camera systems that only record for a few seconds and require careful triggering, the IL5’s Long-Record (LR) option can record at high speed for many minutes at high resolutions, to many hours at reduced resolutions. On-board SSDs are available in sizes from 256GB to 2TB.
